These 10 Cowboy Quotes Are Sound Advice For Wyomingites

The lifestyle and history of the American Cowboy has always captured the imagination of those enamored with the history and culture.

From the cattle drives, to settling a ranch, these men worked hard and looked at life a little differently than most others.

The wisdom that came form the long dusty days of branding, hunting and riding fences, were meshed with a sense of humor that most comedians today would love to possess.

Here’s a list of 10 Cowboy Quotes that I find can be applied in many of life’s trials.

Uh, no explanation needed. This one took me a long time to learn. My grandmother and I used to get into some stupid arguments. It was my grand-dad who spoke those words of wisdom to me, I’ll never forget…” Boy, one day you’ll learn to keep your mouth shut!” He never looked at me while making his deceleration.

I did eventually notice she never argued with him. Hard to argue with someone who’s smarter than yourself.
